Yay!

I found these wonderful guys ages back, on Myspace...but tonight, I was dreaming of those Raggle Taggle Gypsies, Ohhhhhh! and I found the Mcrea Laddies on Youtube.

Only.....superb! :0)

And....only.....from The West Country! :0) :0)

Mad Dog Mcrea - Raggle Taggle Gypsies O - Youtube

And take a listen to their breathtaking 'Coolies Reel' on here....
Their Myspace page...

Lizzie :0)



PS: Myspace seems to be playing up at my end tonight, so if you can't get the music to play, keep trying.

I'll take up the baton, Lizzie, since my favourite niece is sawing the fiddle for this lot. I missed them at Glastonbury, like an idiot, didn't know they were on. Olivia is a fine fiddler, she played with our band, the Foolish Virgins, at a ceilidh in Barley Town House, with Eric the Viking (Hi Eric!) and Bill Sables calling, and we've done a couple of family weddings as well.

This link is a more up-to-date version of events than the YouTube recordings.

I also ought to plug her polymath father, Chris Dunn, as he made her fiddle and considerately moved to the South West, so you got Olivia down there as part of the bargain!

I'm dying to see them, must do it this summer.

Seconded - Liv certainly is a fine fiddler! We're both currently involved putting together a new trio with Paul Hutchinson (of Belshazzar's Feast and Hoover the Dog) so watch this space!

Thanks for finding this thread, Skipjack....I'm listening to them again now..and the speed they end up playing 'Coolies Reel' at, is awesome!   

(It's on their myspace page link above if anyone would like to hear it. Fabulous track!)
